386 COLUMBUS Avenue Unit: 3B, New York City, NY 10024
A rare gem in the heart of the Upper West Side, apartment 3B is a serene oasis offering a quiet escape and the maximum level of privacy. Overlooking lush tree-top gardens, bordered by stunning ivy walls and accompanied by a private elevator landing, it almost feels like living in your own townhouse with all of the benefits of a full-service building. Available for the first time in nearly 20 years and newly renovated over the last 6 months, one can move right into this reimagined two-bedroom condominium home located directly across from the American Museum of Natural History and Theodore Rosevelt Park.
A private elevator landing leads into the west-facing, sun-splashed side-by-side living and dining area boasting amazing natural light throughout the day and a beautiful exposure with tree-top and open-sky views. The open kitchen is a chef's dream, with caesar stone countertops and a built-in breakfast bar with lots of cabinetry, counter, and pantry space, and a private trash chute on the floor. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances including a Bosch dishwasher, an LG full-size refrigerator, a Ge Cafe range and hood.
Just up the wooden staircase lie two bright and spacious West-facing bedrooms complete with Brazilian oak wood floors, recessed lighting, and PTAC units in every room throughout (providing both heat and AC).The primary bedroom suite is outfitted with a humongous walk-in closet and an on-suite bathroom featuring marble floors and a porcelain floating sink. The second bedroom presents large floor-to-ceiling closets and space for a desk. Directly off the second bedroom is a white marbled tiled bathroom complete with a brand new Miele washer and dryer.
This home is situated in the most superb location on the West Side, across the street from the American Museum of Natural History, and moments to Central Park, Theodore Roosevelt Park and its dog run, and the Diana Ross Playground. All the best dining, shopping, and entertainment options that the West Side has to offer are close by such as Zabar's, and the 77th/79th Street Farmers Market (which is directly across the street on Sundays!). Extraordinarily close by are all the public transportation you could ever need, including the B, C, and 1 subway lines, and numerous buses including the 79th Street crosstown.
